There are of course levels beyond even this point if you start getting unique or custom parts made.
There's a lot of products on this list, no they will not all be in stock at the same time usually. It usually takes 1 - 2 years to "finish" a build. Waiting for "everything to be in stock all at once" is a fool's game.
